Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For the record I'm posting from my laptop at a bar. However, onto the question. I just moved into my new apartment, and have the computer setup. My new fiber optic internet (20 Mbps ZOMG) won't be up until Monday or Tuesday.
In the meantime I seem to have picked up a wireless network which appears to have been setup haphazardly, named linksys, no password, WEP etc.
What are the ramifications for using this in the interim? Both ethically and security wise? I mean could there be some crazy hacker sitting downstairs waiting for me to connect to his wifi so he can steal my soul/bank account numbers? Is it wrong to use a minimum amount of bandwidth once a day just to check email, order status' etc (on that note if I do use this connection is logging into my email or anything else that requires account info a bad idea?)
